Looking For Brooks's From Ainsworth - a Memory of Ainsworth.
My name is Simon Brooks and I am looking for people that may be related to me, however distant. Having done quite a lot of research on my family tree I have discovered that my Brooks ancestors have lived in or around Ainsworth from about 1700 – 1900.
My Great Grandfather was called Edwin Brooks and was born in Ainsworth in 1876. He was the son of Thomas Brooks (b1851 d1915) of Ainsworth and Ann Brooks (maiden name McAvoy – born in Scotland).
Edwin had a lot of brothers and sisters all born in Ainsworth them being;
Mary Ann Brooks (b1870),
Marshall Brooks (b1875 – d1893),
Amelia (b 1878),
Barbara Brooks (b1883),
Bessie Brooks (b1885),
Alice Brooks (b1888),
Ellen Brooks (b1888),
John Henry Brooks (b1891),
Clara Brooks (b1894),
William (Willie) Brooks (b1895),
Maggie Brooks (b1897)
Robina Brooks (b1900)
I would welcome any more information on the above people and would love it if anyone knows of any living descendants of these relations and they could ask them to please contact me as I would love to learn more about my ancestors that lived in Ainsworth.
